Great pick up. This guy has great vision, elusiveness, and hands. Steal!

4th rounder.
seems like a lot to move up 7 picks in what is supposedly a deep draft

Oh well, I guess we'll only take 1 OL bust in the 4th this year :tongue:

Was Mixon still available? Maybe they thought both of them would be gone by the time they picked. Plus, they had an extra 4th rounder.

•Cook is the ninth-ranked player in PFF’s top 300 prospects of 2017.
•Cook averaged 4.2 yards after contact per attempt last season, second-highest among halfbacks in this draft class.
•Cook’s 88.8 overall grade last season was second-best among halfbacks.
•He led the FBS in elusive rating last season, breaking 99 tackles.
PFF's #1 Rated RB. And he ran behind a crappy O-line so he will feel right at home!

Yep. that's why it seemed a bit odd to me. there were still 3 RBs that Mayock called "1st round talent" on the board and there hasn't been a RB taken since. So why pay to move up?

I guess they really fell in love with Cook.

Don't get me wrong, I like Cook and would have been really really happy had they got him @ 48

I seen a tweet from a media member with Cook and Murray they are under 5m. Upgrade, by a lot, from last season IMO

Don't hate on my Buckeyes. Some of the best Vikings went to Ohio State.

I love this pick. And why are people talking about the 4th round already? You forget we have two 3rd rounders coming up and one is pretty early with a gang of offensive linemen still available. Only three have been taken at the time of me typing this out i think
